April 2015 Minutes for Moms

Message from the President

April showers bring May flowers....it's finally spring!! We can start to thaw out from such a cold winter, push the memories of snow aside and dream of colorful flowers, warmer days and getting outside more! Be sure to check out the beautiful tulips that bloom at Peddler's Village around mid to late April. The colorful display is absolutely gorgeous and will put a smile on your face. Don't forget to bring your camera!

We have some fun events coming up in the next few months. This month our big event is our MNO fundraiser for CHC held at Fabby Shabby. We are very excited about it and hope a lot of people can come. It will be a relaxed evening of eating and socializing all while collecting donations for a great local charity! Double the fun! If you are unable to make it to the event but would like to donate, we are collecting items up until the day of the event, so you can drop them off at my house (I have a blue bin on my front porch) or you may give them to Jeannine Walsh. In June our big event will be our end of the year dinner to be held at Plumsteadville Inn on June 11th at 7:00 pm. We will also be adding a lot of park days onto the upcoming calendars, as well as various activities for all to enjoy! Happy spring to everyone!!

Past Events

We tried some new events this month as well as some familiar ones. The big hit this month was the tour at Asher's chocolate factory. The kids (and moms!) enjoyed seeing the workers in the factory making the chocolates, learning about how they are made and the kids had fun waving to the workers (some spotted the children's eager faces and waved back!). The smell of chocolate filled the air and everyone enjoyed shopping and looking around the gift shop afterward. We also enjoyed a day at Giggleberry Fair, Jumpin Jacks, the monthly members social and a fun night out bowling. Although the snow stopped some of our events this month, we still managed to enjoy a handful of events!

Save the date!!

Can you believe that we are almost at the end of our fiscal year?! In June we will be having our annual end of the year dinner to celebrate a great year and a wonderful group of ladies. It will be held on Thursday June 11th at 7:00 pm at the Plumsteadville Inn. Please mark your calendars and say that you will join us! This will be our big end of the year celebration before the summer starts- it is sure to be a great night. We hope to see everyone there!

Sunshine Committee

Our Sunshine Committee is in full swing and our chair is Jeannine Walsh. This committee is in place to help out fellow moms of the club if the need arises, by arranging meals or support from other members. So if you know of a MOMS Club member who is expecting a baby, has a long-term illness, or is in need of meals or support from other members, please contact Jeannine at: jeannine.walsh@verizon.net.
